Microzooplankton : Cryptophyte, Ciliate, and Heterotrophic Nanoflagellate Abundances

Summary

Abstract: 

In conjunction with the Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) project in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica, lakes were monitored for microzooplankton by a team based out of the University of Nottingham (led by Johanna Laybourn-Parry). This dataset shows the abundance of heterotrophic nanoflagellates, cryptophytes, and ciliates found at various depths in Lake Fryxell and Lake Hoare.
